Atlanta Falcons @ Carolina Panthers

Will we finally see the return of the King? That is certainly the question of the week for fantasy managers since we got word that CMC is nearing his return to the field. Whether the consensus number one pick in 2020 graces us with his presence or not tonight, this game is going to be electrifying. Finally healthy, the Falcons offense is humming and their defense is.. well its awful. But that’s good for us fantasy folks! Look for lots and lots of points in this classic NFC South shoot out.

Atlanta Falcons Overview:

No team is better at blowing leads than the Atlanta Falcons. They find more ways to lose than most of us could even imagine. After another heart-breaking loss this past Sunday, the birds now face a tough divisional foe coming off their own brutal loss. This offense appears to be running on all cylinders with Julio Jones back in action. Can they keep it up against Teddy 2 Gloves and the Panthers? Let’s find out!

Carolina Panthers Overview:

Can Teddy lead his team to another victory? Who is the number one in Carolina? Will we finally see our king reclaim his throne? There are many questions surrounding this Panthers team leading into week 8. The most important being the inevitable return of Christian McCaffrey. Mike Davis’s dip in production the past two weeks has shown why CMC is oh so valuable to this organization and fantasy managers. Let’s see what Carolina has for us this week.
